2019 Ford F-150 Limited Tops Auto Trader Canada’s Pickup Truck Comparison
The team at Auto Trader Canada pitted four of the biggest, baddest trucks going today against one another in their 2019 Full-Size Pickup Truck Comparison Test. Topping the field was the 2019 Ford F-150 Limited 4×4, which conquered the 2019 Ram 1500 Sport Crew Cab 4×4, the 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 AT4, and the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT Trail Boss.
The four trucks all shared the similarities of crew cab/short box configurations and four-wheel drive, and each was tested in a variety of conditions both urban and rural, on-road and off-road, and with and without a 1,134-kilogram Yamaha AR195 sport boat attached.
In the end, the F-150 Limited outclassed its three competitors with an overall score of 8 out of 10, scoring the highest marks of the field for seating (7.7), interior (8.2), powertrain (7.9), fuel economy (a near-perfect 9.6), and value (6.8). What’s more, in the categories where it wasn’t first — design, suspension and chassis, and towing — it was nipping at the heels of the leader.

Said Auto Trader’s Jeff Wilson of the winner: “There’s a reason the F-150 has been the best-selling vehicle in this country for so many years. It is poised and elegant, yet robust and rugged. It just does everything well.”
The 2019 Ford F-150 Limited was lauded for combining the high-end amenities of the range-topping luxury trim with the might of Ford’s Twin-Turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost engine, which puts out an incredible 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque.
AT’s summary of the F-150 Limited puts it pretty succinctly: “With its 2019 Limited, Ford has brought together its most powerful truck engine with its more luxurious truck interior, resulting in a hard-working truck with incredible power that coddles you down the road. It is a truck that none of us would be disappointed with driving day in and day out. Heck, the seats will even give you a massage while you drive!”
